Who Am I?
I am your cheerleader, that person who is there to motivate you. My goal is to be someone you turn to when you are in need. I want to be there for you through our blog posts, helpful tips, and a friendly shoulder to lean on.
Furthermore, if you need a comrade in arms, I am that person who will fight the good fight right along with you. Everyone knows that education is a tough road to travel. No one knows this more than a fellow teacher.
Additionally, I am your friend, that next door pal, the one you can lean on, tell your problems to, grab a tissue from, and go to for ongoing support. Just sit back and read one of our blogs. We understand.
Education has been my life for the last 29 years. Did I say 29 years? Geez, that’s a long time.
Previously, I was a classroom teacher for third through fifth grade. Those were some of the best times of my life. Ah, the stories I could tell you.
Currently, I am an Elementary Librarian, Blogger, and Teacher Resource Creator, as well as a Writing Coach for 4th and 5th grade. Yes, I am tired.
I have a Bachelors in Elementary Education, a Masters in Library Science, and a Masters in Instructional Technology. See where that Obsessed With Learning thing came about?
I am definitely an avid fan of Children’s Literature. I think it might be on the border of obsession. Ask my husband, the one who sees the Amazon orders.
Presently, I am the International Literacy Association area coordinator for my division. Each year, we read and review 1,000’s of newly published books in search of awesome gems to share with you. (Did I say 1,000’s upon 1,000’s? Yep, and I definitely love each and every moment of this great endeavor).
2018-2019 Teacher of the Year for my elementary school. I am still in shock. What were they thinking?
I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. They are all my pride and joy; what keeps me going.
Author of three books with one more on the way. Sometimes it is hard to let go of that last book. After a while, they do become like your children.
Writer, Illustrator, Designer, and Creator, my true passion!
Yep, all of that is me. Now, what about you?
